As Fall steps into season, my mind starts to wander off to the various Christmas collections that are launching/have launched online and in stores… Before that, there are a couple of lovely beauty products that made it into my September 2015 Beauty Favourites! I’ve sneaked in a fashion item as well because it has been keeping me company pretty much every other day.
The ideal Ulzzang (얼짱 or pronounced as eol-jjang) look features fuller-looking, straight brows for a youthful and fresh appearance. Well, now you can ace that look by stepping up your brow game with Clio’s latest brow product – Kill Brow Tinted Tattoo.
If there is one lipstick you need in the world, it has to be the latest lipstick range from well-loved K-Beauty brand, Clio – Virgin Kiss Tension Lip!
Just as my blog title suggests, these lipsticks are beyond this world – they are highly-pigmented (no joke), highly-moisturising, and comes in six delectable shades for you to mix and match! You can even do an easy ombre lips with these! Some of these shades are also featured in the Korean drama – The Producers, worn by actress Kong Hyo Jin, who’s also Clio’s new face!
Housed in a classic black packaging, the lipsticks have glorious colour pay-off that’s fade-resistant, due to the semi-matte film that clings onto the shape of the lips! Amazing technology in there and I witnessed the lasting power of these lipsticks – the colour was still there even after gobbling my meals down!
April to me has a rather significant meaning. It was the month of transition for me, from a graduate to a full-time working adult. It feels surreal that I have now entered the workforce, joining every adult in their morning rush and their 9-5 (technically 9-6) schedule. As such, I haven’t had much time to play with all my new toys (makeup) sitting on the vanity shelf. It has just been grabbing a few new products and sticking to them for a good week or two.
Thus, April’s Beauty Favourites is all about convenient and basic needs, comprising of a few makeup and skincare essentials.
Do you have that one brand of makeup that you tend to pick out every day just because you feel safe, or whenever you are rushing? For me, whenever I don’t feel like picking out particular makeup products, I tend to find myself reaching for Clio’s products, specifically the Gelpresso Waterproof Shadows and the Kill Black/Brown Eyeliners. They are fuss-free and very easy to use, hence are my ideal products for quick touch-ups as well!
Since Clio has sent me several other products including some of their lip products – Virgin Kiss Lip Primer, Lipnicure Liquid Lipsticks and Top Coat, I’ve decided to do a One Brand Makeup Pictorial using these, complete with my views and thoughts on them.
